Tuck And Roll The Ultimate Hairstyle Dud Saver

tumblr_l472knAzMR1qc15foo1_500Easy style  for dry Hair

Maybe it isn’t wash day and its your second day and you need an easy go to style, well grab your favorite spritz and spritz your hair then add your leave-in or light cream for good measure.

I love to use water with Aloe Vera Juice along with Cantu leave in. Once your hair is nice and moisturized, split your hair in two halves.

Starting with your good side, just roll it towards the middle and pin, and then do the same with your other good side. Basically you will have two french rolls on either side of your head.

Revive the Dud – Twist out or wash and go

When your twist out or wash and go did not go like the way you planned it, don’t fret! Since your hair is already moisturized there is no need to re-moisturize.

Repeat style one, all you need to do is roll the sides of your hair first upwards (towards the sides of your head) and use bobby pins to secure. Once you are satisfied with your sides, then roll the back of your hair upwards and pin to secure.


Yes, you have turned your dud into a rose. And you thought you had to put that hat on again tsk tsk?

Pomp and roll

Do you know the famed and celebrated singer, Janelle Monae and her signature style, the pomp and roll? What you need to do is make sure your hair is moisturized thoroughly. After that, part your hair in two sections, one on top and one on bottom.

For the bottom section, roll your hair sideways, which would look like a sideways tuck and roll, pin that section until secure. Now take the top section and pull forward until all of the hair is in your view. Now bring the ends of your hair upwards and roll loosely to your head. Pin until secure in a molded pomp, and you are done! Chic and stylish!

Hump and tuck

If you are not the “pomp” kind of naturalista, you can always go with a shorter version with the “hump and tuck.” What you need to do is make sure your hair is pretty moisturized.

After that, part your hair in two sections one on top and one on bottom. Roll and tuck the bottom section upwards to the back of your head and secure with bobby pins. Now mold the top section upwards and tightly tuck your ends into a nice hump, then secure with bobby pins. The Pomp above is done loosely the hump is alot tighter, but very similar techniques. Once done you are ready for the summer day!

Various styles and elegance

If you want to prep your tuck and roll the night before for a fresh style the next morning, you can add flat twists to your style.  For more variety, you can even do the tuck and roll with your braids or 2 strand twists, whether you have extensions or your natural hair.

Style your tuck and roll with decorative bobby pins with pearls or diamonds to create a stunning look. You can also add flowers or bows to make this style very colorful for summer vacation or a casual gathering at your home.

Make the style yours! Naturalistas, don’t fret over your damp twist out and messy wash n go’s. This easy style is just the flair you need for a carefree and light-hearted summer. Have fun with this style and enjoy your hair!
